20.06.2017 - Racing result
After ALSAKER (Af Albahar) victory in 2016 in the same race, it is NAFEES (Azadi x Vivamaria) a pure product of the Royal Cavalry of Oman, born and raised in France for the Royal Cavalry, who just won the Qatar Derby for the arabian 4 years' old (Gr I PA).
Winner of a Grade III race on the 28th of April at the hippodrome of La Teste de Buch, NAFEES proves his value once again in the Qatar Derby des pur sang arabes de 4 ans (Gr I PA). His jockey rode him very precisely waiting for the last 400 meters to ask for the final effort. The colt, trained by Charles GOURDAIN, showed his courage by coming all the way up from the pack to dominate AHZAR (Munjiz) at the finish post. BANDAR (Munjiz) is third in this Grade 1 podium.
NAFEES offers his first success in a Grade 1 race to his trainer Charles GOURDAIN.
